20 Civilisation Development Staff Let Go At Firaxis

Oh dear, Firaxis has confirmed the studio has let approximately 20 staff go including members from the quality assurance team, user interface art team, animators, programmers and designers in the Civilization series. 2K PR boss Markus Wilding stated:
“I can confirm that Firaxis has realigned its development resources in order to streamline its development process, reduce costs and maximize the overall performance the studio."

“This will result in the elimination of approximately 20 positions. These reductions will not impact Firaxis’ ability to create and deliver AAA titles, including its forthcoming Sid Meier’s Civilization V and Sid Meier’s Civilization Network for Facebook.”
Lets hope the game arrives as planned, unaffected. Civilisation V is due for release on September 21st.
